chuck todd. our final "daily rundown" of the obama first term. right to my first reads of the morning. if 2009 was all about hope, 2013 may be about the ability to cope. so says one of our pollsters. if it is possible americans have grown more pessimistic about their leaders in washington and, worse, they think those leaders are now hurting the economy. as president obama prepares to be sworn in for a second term our new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows a lagging economy and partisan battles are sa sapping the public confidence replacing the buoyant mood of four years ago with more pessimism now about the future of the country even as the economy slowly recovers. the president remains personally in a strong political position. his job approval rating is at a steady 52% about where it was last month and a higher rating than he has had through most of his first term. while the public likes the president personally a full 74% have responded and told us they like obama, he still hasn't won them over on his policies. and on his policy goals. the public is split. 49% disapp
